Elective (s) (3-6 credits)

Course offerings are subject to change throughout the program.

Due to Spanish immigration law, online classes for credit are not permitted while studying at NYU Madrid.

Electives: CCMPH students are required to take 3 electives during the course of the program, but may take more. 

Spanish Language Courses: Each semester, students are required to take a Spanish language class.  

Credit Load: Students must be enrolled in at least 12-credits during the fall and spring semesters to study abroad and maintain a student study visa.

GPH short-term programs: GPH offers short-term study abroad intensive courses during January (J-term) and spring break. This is a great way for students to travel to another country for one to two weeks, earn 3-credits, and experience a different culture. Cross-Continental MPH students are able to participate in these programs but must apply to the programs during the application process, and are required to pay the airfare and the program fee that accompanies each program. Tuition and fees are included in the CCMPH tuition as long as the total credits don't exceed 46 (or full-time course load). 

Important Notice: Students that wish to take a course during J-term outside of the U.S. must take into consideration that they will have to apply for their Spanish visa during the winter break. Students may want to consider taking a course in the U.S. over J-term, apply for a second U.S. passport, or take an additional elective in the fall, spring or during spring break. 

Credit Overload: If a student chooses to take more than 46-credits (or full-time course load) during the program, unless required, they are responsible for paying the additional tuition and fees for those courses and must receive approval from their adviser in advance of registering for classes.
